Named Scholarship Funds

Welcome to Named Scholarship Funds

The generosity of donors has led to the establishment of privately funded scholarships that provide more than 250 awards totaling almost $1.1 million annually.

Privately endowed scholarships are housed at the MCV Foundation and are a combination of need-based and merit-based awards. When each fund was established, donors outlined the criteria used to select the student recipients. Some scholarships support students considering a certain specialty or from a particular geographic region. Others reward those who have distinguished themselves through community service or academic merit.

The medical school's financial aid office keeps students informed of all scholarship and loan opportunities and provides counseling to students on debt management. The School of Medicine Scholarship Committee is responsible for making the awards of both need- and merit-based scholarships. The committee also works with the School of Medicine Admissions Committee to award the various recruitment scholarships. Beginning in 2001, all students were required to complete an online scholarship application to be eligible for an award.

In addition to these privately funded scholarships, there are a number of school, state and federally funded scholarships awarded to our students.
